Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: One of the great advantages of working in the nursing profession is the variety of opportunities to develop in different roles. All individuals redefine themselves through interactions and relationships. New roles are often a source of rich learning for an individual to create a refined self with changes in behavior. However, these role transitions bring challenges. Even anticipating challenges in a new role does not guarantee the elimination or reduction of experiences that may lead to drowning or burn out. In observing a wide diversity of these role transitions in nursing, we see the movement from "honeymoon and hopefulness", into the "valley of despair" and emergence into varying levels of role integration. Using the frameworks of reflective learning and storytelling with narrative analysis we identified common themes, stressors and risks with role transition. The American Nurses Association standards for Collegiality and Leadership define our role requirements for self evaluation, promoting learning for ourselves and others, and demonstrating leadership. As nursing supervisors, we are passionate about learning and developing ourselves as leaders and promoting leadership development to support succession planning. We explored the supervisor role in identifying strategies and tools to resource individuals during role transition. These tools include relationship competence, leadership skills, and utilizing personal power . Outcomes include increased awareness of normal role transition phases, realistic adjustments in expectations of self development, and being able to identify a individualized plan to support role adaptation.
